Okay--I mixed outdoor denim blue reinker (5 drops) with about a teaspoon of white paint and mixed it up. I swept it on colonial white cardstock with the foam brush. After the back coat I put some more of the reinker directly on the brush and swiped it all over.
After it dried I swiped it with Barn red (pad to paper) and assembled the card. I sanded all the layered papers.
All supplies except the ribbon are CTMH--the ribbon could have been but I was out and had to use same color, different width, different maker.
